I've shown previously how to fade a single edge of an image with GIMP. That's a cool effect, but sometimes you want to fade all of the edges of an image. So today I'm going to show you how to fade all of the edges of an image.
After my previous overview of Open Movie Editor (OME), I decided to create a small How-To regarding an easily obtainable piece of functionality that's not yet standard within OME.
Open Movie Editor natively contains only one transition between clips - a simple cross fade. However, one of the most used transitions in video editing is a fade to black. By adding a black still image, between two clips on a single video track in OME, it is possible to generate exactly what you need.
I’m not the only one who thinks that the GIMP is complex. So, what are your options if you’re casual user who just wants to edit a few images here and there and isn’t really interested in all the power that GIMP offers but would rather have a light weight but functional editor.
GIMP is an amazing image editing software that allows people with limitless imagination create extraordinary images out of ordinary photos. To let you see what I mean, I have here a collection of some of the most beautiful and sometimes funny GIMPed images. I hope you’ll enjoy this one as much as I do.1. An eye with regard by funadium2.
While you might associate working with images with big graphical programs like GIMP or Photoshop, ImageMagick is an entirely different animal. It is a suite of command-line programs for converting and manipulating images.
Many image editing programs have a library or "scrapbook" where you can store images for future use. You can then open this scrapbook (within the image editing app) and drag and drop the image into the image you're working on(usually as a new layer). You can easily create a scrapbook for Gimp and store images for future use to edit and incorporate in all your photo projects.
